Akuto Sai enters the Constant Academy for Magick Arts hoping to become a high priest and change the world for the better. But when the school's oracle declares his future profession to be 'Demon Lord', he finds himself feared and hated by the entire student population. Now, instead of making comrades and studying for his exam, Akuto finds himself fighting off monsters, bullies, and well-meaning classmates in various states of undress. If navigating a magical high school as a transfer student wasn't difficult enough, Akuto now has to deal with a cute android ordered to observe him 24-hours a day, the precocious attention of the flying, invisible and naked Keena Soga and the advances of the school's most popular girl. Will he be able to overcome his fate, pass his classes, and mend his friendship with the violent Junko Hattori, or will he succumb to his demonic destiny?
Each of these series has a lead male that has tremendous powers and is surrounded by a bunch of women for fan service. If you enjoyed one series, you would likely enjoy the other.
Like shounen's with plenty of ecchi, Gar, and ridiculous powers? Both of these are right up your alley.
Although Needless features almost no magic and is mostly all shounen, and Daimaou is more harem and heavily dependant on magic/fantasy; both series are fast paced, high octane action titles with less emphasis on story and more emphasis on eye-candy. They are both drawn in a similar color palette and style as well.
In any event, if you enjoyed one, you'll certainly enjoy the other.
“Vash, the Stampede” - worth 60 billion dollars to the one who can turn him in. Bounty hunters everywhere are on the lookout for this legendary gunman, not to mention insurance agents Meryl Stryfe and Milly Thompson, who are tasked with preventing any potential damage that this Vash can cause. But with 60 billion on his head, Vash is not an easy man to find.
The main character and villian in each series are very close to one another. The main character in each has to go through a similar set of hurddles. And each series has a lot of fighting and action in them.
Badass main characters, mysterious powers and relationships/pasts, and lots of humor. This is the closest anime I found to Trigun, which is awesome!!!!!!!!
Star Driver takes place on the fictional Southern Cross Isle. One night, a boy named Takuto washes up on shore swimming from the mainland. He later enrolls in Southern Cross High School as a freshmen and makes new friends. However, beneath the school is a group of mysterious giants called Cybodies, which can be controlled by humans in an alternate dimension known as Zero Time. Takuto, The "Galactic Pretty Boy" , finds himself dragged into opposition with the "Glittering Crux Brigade". Glittering Star Cruciform Group), a mysterious group that intends to take possession of the island's Cybodies for their own purposes as well as break the seals of the island's four Shrine Maidens, whose powers prevent the Cybodies from functioning outside of Zero Time.
These series both are extremely over the top action series with a rather mysterious main character. If you like ridiculous series then these are a good fight.
they both have the same type of feel for the show and are awesome in their own way. Although Needless has to do with mutants with lots of fan service and Star Driver has to do with mecha and fanservice they both have awesome battles. Also they both have pretty good OST
In the not too distant future, discrimination is based not on the color of your skin, but the psychic powers you possess. The wielders of these skills (known as E's) are persecuted in the slums of Gald, but are coveted in Ashuram, a military organization dedicated to enhancing these abilities for mysterious purposes. For one man named Kai, his journey from one of Ashuram's best to one of Gald's finest will take him through the heart of a conspiracy that threatens to destroy not only all E's, but all humans on the planet as well...
With an almost identical plot (part of a city destroyed, strange corporation using people with powers to hunt others with the same powers etc) and extended fights, E's and Needless are two peas in a pod. Note that I didn't particularly like either though.
In the land of Kuruda, warriors with magical powers and incredible fighting skills battle for the ultimate prize: the title of Sevaar, the strongest warrior in the land. Elle Ragu, nicknamed Shadow Skill, is the newest Sevaar to emerge, but that doesn't make her life any easier. Teaching her "little brother," Gau, how to be a warrior, fending off assassins from other kingdoms and thwarting enemy invasions is hard enough, but her biggest challenge will be paying off her drinking debts!
If you liked the mindless fighting and action in Needless, check out Shadow Skill. While not entirely similar in plot, while watching Needless I had a distinct feeling about Shadow Skill - I think mostly because of the superpowers and fighting. Regardless, try it out.
